Global Brain & Collective Inteligence
Co-Creating Transmedia Communities You shouldn’t be asking do I need a community of interest around me and my work but what will happen if I don’t have one! Yesterday I presented twice at a great two day conference in Melbourne called ‘ Arresting Audiences ‘. The irony of the title not lost on this writer as the real intention of the event run by Film Victoria (a traditional film funding organisation) was commendable – finally focus on ‘users ‘, ‘watchers’, ‘participants’ aka as old school ‘audiences’. Most of the talks explored new marketing, basic demography and obligatory future trends with a couple of inspirational ‘write for your inner audience’ highlight talks from the likes of Jane ‘buffy/BSG’ Espenson, but I was asked to look at the social and transmedia aspects that affect and impact on audiences/communities so below is: the embedded slideshare of my presentation

The Stone is a forum for contemporary philosophers and other thinkers on issues both timely and timeless. Public policy debates often involve appeals to results of work in social sciences like economics and sociology. For example, in his State of the Union address this year, President Obama cited a recent high-profile study to support his emphasis on evaluating teachers by their students’ test scores. The study purportedly shows that students with teachers who raise their standardized test scores are “more likely to attend college, earn higher salaries, live in better neighborhoods and save more for retirement.” How Reliable Are the Social Sciences?
